Correct. At least this is how Google maps signs it, I thought it is considered a part of A15.

So, what the inferno did to post this tunnel in green, normally only reserved for Autostrade in Italy? ...And makes me lose my precious time to find this stretch in all the area ! Too much Chianti or grappa ?

Italian road numbering system always seemed a mess for me - some roads are signed "SS" and then few kilometers later they turn into "SP"... or there is a directional sign to "SS" road but then there are "SR" markings along this road... not to mention the mess on maps - some maps mark a road as "SS" when on other map it is "SP".

Maybe it was required so that SALT can maintain this stretch... dunno.

But it has to be that way. It is so... Italian, to have inexplicable government things just like beautiful women and fast sportscars.

Italian Audis are much nicer than German Audis, in all fairness.

Many Italian state roads (SS) were later assigned to the provinces or regions and became, respectively, SP and SR, without changing number (there are exceptions, though).

Highway = major/main road. Not necessarily an expressway/motorway/freeway

A highway is a major road. Not necessarily a motorway, expressway, or dual carriageway. Road standard is irrelevant; what counts is its importance in the road network.
